Currumbin Rock Pools Engagement Shoot

Holy crap it’s easy doing my job when you get a couple like Karina and Barry!

Three years ago Karina was in Nimbin with her sister and as Karina puts it

“Barry was their with his best friend and brother (who all came over to travel Aus together) their car broke down and all had to call off work for Monday to get it fixed.. I remember walking down the main st of town to get breakfast and seeing 3 lost guys in the middle of the street with a bag of goon”

They ended up in the same backpackers that night where they meet and grabbed a drink. Barry was on the gold coast from Northern Ireland and Karina was based in Brisbane.

They ended up keeping in touch and by the end of Barry’s visa he’d decided he wanted to stay. He got a work visa sorted and Karina eventually moved to the Gold Coast so they could live together.

Initially we were set to do the shoot up on Mt. Tamborine, but some last minute decision making had us all  a lot closer to home and heading to Currumbin Rock Pools.

Currumbin rock pools are generally pretty busy, but by walking upstream 50m you can find yourself in your own little oasis with a beautiful green backdrop.
